    Recntly the microsoft security essentials has shutdown and I am unable to uninstall or update the program software. Microsoft won't offer free support. So I am trying this site to see if anyone can help with error code 0x80070715
    when i try to reinstall, there is a message about 404 file missing.
    how can this be resolved?

    This would generally indicate a problem with Windows Update Service which is required to run in order to update MSE.

    Please download Farbar Service Scanner and run it on the computer with the issue.

    • Put a check mark in all the boxes.
    • Press "Scan".
    • It will create a log (FSS.txt) in the same directory the tool is run.
    • Please copy and paste the log into your reply.
